Vertical and Adjacent Angles

Published on 09/29/2010

Activity Overview

Students explore vertical and adjacent angles by identifying pairs of angles and then changing the intersecting lines of a geometric model.

Key Steps

  • Image

    In Problem 1, students begin their exploration of vertical angles. Students will move points on the intersecting lines to discover the properties of vertical angles and make a conjecture.

  • Image

    In Problem 2, students will investigate adjacent angles constructed from two intersecting lines and make a conjecture.
